Lucknow Central box office collection day 1: Did Farhan Akhtar get out of jail in this prison tale?
Lucknow Central box office collection day 1: Lucknow Central, released on Friday, has had a disastrous opening with a meager 12 pct occupancy rate in its morning shows. It further seemed unable to attract the audience to venture into theatres in the evening shows either as it has collected only Rs 2.04 crore on its opening day. This prison tale did not get the best of Farhan Akhtar out in the open and that was the only thing that could have got this film out of jail - and the same is reflected in its earnings.

Lucknow Central box office collection day 1: "#LucknowCentral Fri Rs 2.04 cr. India biz... Growth on Sat and Sun is crucial," shared movie critic and business analyst Taran Adarsh. But was Lucknow Central expected to do very well at the BO. The answer is not really. Expectations from the movie were average and that is exactly how it has panned out. Disappointing? Yes, simply because Farhan Akhtar is starring in it and there is a huge surge of expectancy from anything he does. (Bollywood Hungama)

"#LucknowCentral has wonderful performances... However, the screenwriting appeals only in bits and spurts... Music doesn't work either" (Bollywood Hungama)
